Being in the outlet business means dealing with products in bulk. Dealers of waterproofing materials mainly sell to contractors and masons, although they do also sell to retail home improvement stores. Construction contractors can work with wholesalers to develop regular shipping schedules.
Professionals in this industry need to have good communication, sales, and business skills as they must deal with customers on a regular basis. Suppliers offer bulk discounts on large orders of anything from sealants and coatings to epoxy spray paint and tar based compounds. These products can be used on roofing, flooring, foundations, driveways, and decks to repel water and moisture. Even boats require waterproofing.
Companies that sell these products should stand behind their products 100 percent, offering guarantees and warranties on supplies. They may offer specials and deals on certain items, and they may even offer free shipping over a certain dollar amount. Websites provide customers with an easy way to view water resistant supplies and place orders. Some dealers require accounts be set up first in order for a certified contractor to be able to experience bulk discounts.
Electricians, roofers, builders, and clothing manufacturers are all customers of waterproofing materials wholesalers. Some clothing is made to repel water, such as for those active in the outdoors. Rubber boots are inherently water resistant. Concrete foundations also need to be water resistant, in order to prevent moisture from getting into the basement through tiny cracks. Tar on a driveway or roofing can provide necessary waterproofing.
Dealers may boast product lines of epoxy, spray paint, thermal spray coatings, compounds, and concrete admixtures. Customers can order online, over the phone, or through a warehouse or store setting.
